Now that I have the lottery system pretty much complete. I need your input on how to better design the page.

I really want the page to be impressive looking and polished looking. I have complete control over how it looks since I built it from scratch.

So let's hear your ideas and input. If I use your ideas I'll give you 300 points.

Right now we have 3 lottery accounts, but I'll be adding 4 and 5 soon just in case we need them later.

So we need a design that shows when the lottery is closed or open. Maybe one more to show to guests or people that are not logged in.

While we are at let's hear your thoughts on the gamble account as well.

this is a minor thing, but in the description of how to submit an entry via subscription to the YouTube channel, you should consider mentioning that one must switch to the "Community" tab at the top of the channel's page. It took me a stupid amount of time to figure that out.  embarassed

I've never seen a Community tab on a youtube page lol. For me, it was always on the left bar where the bulletins are right on the landing page itself

that's weird.

 

when i click on the lottery log 1 link, they just redirect me to the homepage – is that meant to happen?

Fixed the link to the lottery 1 link. The font is called "Hoefler Text - Black"

sent you an email.

 

At work – well, going home now so couldn't upload the image anywhere.

 

Hope it helps. May just do a proper design if I get a chance tomorrow.

I think it's a good start. Here is the screenshot he sent me. Would need info on how to enter via tweet button, giveaway post, etc.

I have it to the point where I could not have it depend on BuddyPress any more. My end goal is to have it show on a post or page just by entering in a shortcode for example:

So with that said, I want to redesign it so it would fit in a normal post width if need be. So a possibility is to do tabs. Or show and hide things with clicks.

But multiple lotteries won't be active on the same post or page. They would be on separate pages / posts. No point in loading all that up if most are closed for business 😉

I'll keep it in mind Tosh, I'll adapt my design to a "post embedded" kind'a model!

Some ideas for tabs in no particular order:

Donate Points | Social Entires | All Entries | How To Enter

Then above all the tabs we could have this info along with the image banner. Which we make for all giveaway posts now.
With some text below it about the giveaway.

Your entries in the lottery
Chance of winning
Points Spent
Total Points in Lottery
Entries Left
Time left to enter the lottery (with a countdown).

Quick draft. But doesn't have to look like this at all either. Just a idea.

Thoughts?

Looks good. Still think a Giveaway section could be made (if it's not too much trouble) so ALL giveaways are auto listed there. Then again, the mini banners do a great job of listing them on every page...

A similar system but not as feature rich as ours is this. I don't want it to look exactly like that, but maybe borrow some ideas from it perhaps.

O yea any way you guys could find a way to BOLD the current entries we have on the lottery lists?  I know you can ctrl f for it, but i think it'd make it stand out easier
